Buyers on Lea Elite Collections:
slats could be better
The Lea Elite Expressions Bunk Beds feature a very contemporary style with simple design influences that can either accentuate or complement almost any setting. The bed is finished in a rich, "root beer" color with matched cherry veneers which adds to its high end contemporary feel. A unique feature of the Elite Expressions bunk bed is the bookcase built into the headboard; it provides a very convenient shelving right by the sleepers head -- to lay off the book, a laptop, or place a favorite teddy bear on. Note that it is possible to reverse the headboard so that the bookcase is facing outwards, thus enabling access from the outside. This feature (the bookcase) makes the whole bunk bed construction some six inches longer than is customary.
Being part of the Elite collections, the Expressions bunk beds benefit from their strong points: higher quality materials; multiple step finish process featuring hand selected veneers with as many as 7 different spray applications and as many as 8 additional hand applications; metal connectors, featured throughout for strength and lasting durability and to prevent unintentional rail detachment; ladders and guardrails are attached with metal screws and metal-to-metal fasteners to provide strength and security; slat roll system provides mattress support without the need for a box spring or a bunkie board, and each slat fastens with a screw giving additional strength and structural integrity to the beds.
The ability to accommodate multiple under bed storage options adds to Elite Expressions bunk beds' versatility: the Dual Function Underbed Storage Unit (as seen on the image) is useful as either a trundle bed or a storage component, while the Underbed Drawer Box features storage capabilities only.
